Imps Facing Yellow Peril

Ahead of the Aldershot Town game, with Kidderminster Harriers and the FA Cup also on the horizon, two key Imps are now just one yellow card away from a ban with another vital piece of the jigsaw  just two away. There is also some dispute over whether Ben Tomlinson will be banned for reaching 5, even though STMI can only find four so far in the League.

 

Lincoln City F.C. badge.png 

Sean Newton and Ben Tomlinson picked a yellow apiece last night to move to four for the season, just one card away from a one match ban.  Tom Miller is now up to three for the season suggesting the slender Imps squad are walking a tight-rope after some less than favourable refereeing decisions.  However it appears that both Miller and Tomlinson have received an additional yellow card each, which must have come in either a friendly or Lincs Cup match.  This means Tommo will face a one game ban on Saturday with two Imps still walking the tightrope on four. So far only Power has served a ban for his red that many also felt was  heavy handed.

Thus far – in the League that is – the Imps have accumulated twenty-two yellow cards and one red and attracted an unfair bull-boy tag. That particular headline on a Hereford site ran the day before a referee dished out five cautions, over a quarter of the total prior to last night, in a game that saw the Bulls get away very lightly indeed. Lincoln, far from dirty, do have cover in a well balanced squad unless injuries also play a part.

The card-count

Player Cautions
Newton 4
Tomlinson 4
Miller 3
Rowe 2
Jordan 2
Foster 1
Power 1
Boyce 1
Yussuf 1
Gray 1
Nolan 1
Sheridan 1
   
Reds  
Power 1

Fortunately the manager has assembled a well-balanced squad, despite working on a shoestring budget that will ultimately lessen the strength in depth at his disposal. Simmo has cover for both full-backs, with Dan Gray more than capable and arguably good enough to start in any League 2 or Conference side.  Jordan can also play at left-back and Foster acts as a defensive stalwart anywhere on the park.

Scoring goals could however prove to be a problem with Tomlinson head and shoulders above his taller peers.  Newton and Miller have also delivered heavily in the assist department, although Dan Gray also has the long throw to match the herculean Miller.

Miller & Newton Are Best Two Full-Backs In Skrill Premier

Since Sean Newton arrived from Stockport County and Tom Miller has been converted to right-back by Simmo, the Imps have discovered the best and most exciting full-back combination since the days of Keith Alexander’s wing-backs.

Both men are eager to get up the flanks to devastating effect, with Tom also possessing a long throw that is as good as any corner or free-kick.  Sean supplies those corners along with Alan Power ensuring our set-piece potency is revered throughout the division. So far the duo’s assist count stands at seven – Newton (5), Miller (2) with Captain Power (3) also well and truly in the frame.  Miller has also bagged two goals, including the sublime chest down and half-volley against Nuneaton on Saturday.

The defensive side of their game is none too shabby either with both men getting back to clear their lines and seemingly never knowing they are beaten.  The card-count is of some concern with Newton on four and Miller on two, with the former just one caution away from a one match ban that could weaken the defence. Todd Jordan could step in or Dan Gray who has to feel unlucky at getting so few opportunities of late.

The consistency of Sean and Tom is as inspiring as their bravery and desire to turn defence into attack.  Both players enjoy an average rating of 8.3 and, although Newton has more man of the match awards than any other player, with four, he is closely followed by Miller currently one behind on 3.

Tom Miller is joint second goal scorer and both feature highly in the assists charts (Newton is top) as well as the card collectors.  Here is a better illustration of the two heroes overall contribution to the team.

Boyce Faces England Challenge

Andrew Boyce, the former Doncaster Rovers youth,  faces the challenge of marking Jake Hyde on Saturday, with his Barnet FC and England C colleague Keanu Marsh-Brown also bombing in through the channel.  Both lads made their débuts against Latvia for the national amateur and under 23 side in a 0-1 defeat in Jelgava.

Vic Erzantarz downs a hair of the dog dons the armour and takes to the keyboard. 

Doncaster Rovers FC.png Gainsboroughtrinityfc.png Lincoln City F.C. badge.png

Boyce will not be alone of course with Nat Brown, Tom Miller and Sean Newton to back him up with Simmo’s two or perhaps even three defensive midfield shields. However the others will be kept busy by runs from deep from a free-flowing side leaving Boyce to mark the Skrill Premier’s top marksman, already on 5 this term.

Simmo slapped a £50,000 fee on Boycie, who saw heartbreak at both Doncaster and Kings Lynn who folded while he was just a kid to end his football dream.  Then Gainsborough gave him  a part-time opportunity before the Imps ventured a 12,000 fee to give him a chance to make a full-time living at  the game again. After turning down interest from 3 League clubs Boycie has been brilliant this season, dealing with some big names and reputations. He is learning from Simmo and Foster as well as forming a great partnership with Nat Brown and appears to be able to cope with height, strength and pace admirably. Nat Brown has backed him well  but Andy is beginning to show what Doncaster Rovers saw when they spotted him a few years ago.

Big Game Boycie, both beauty & Beast of Sincil Bank!

Newtons Neutron Bombs Primed

New Imps hero and former Stockport County, Chester City, Barrow FC  and AFC Telford left-back Sean Newton has stormed into enemy territory down the left flank so far this season including a match winning display against Forest Green Rovers. Our flying full-back also delivers payloads every bit as devastating as The Lancasters of bomber county did more than half a century ago. 

Thank-you for reading by Neil Gentleman-Hobbs

 

Lincoln City F.C. badge.png

Sean supplied the assists for both of Waide Fairhurst’s goal in the 2-1 win over Rovers but he has been a massive part of the team in every game this season. Newton bombs up and down the line throughout a game but  it is the accuracy of his nukes that ensure he bags half a dozen goals each season with almost treble that in assists. He even asked for an assist bonus when he negotiated his deal.

Another perhaps even more devastating Newton nuke is his hay-maker free-kicks. We saw it in action in the final minute against Boston when his 25 yarder settled the game with aplomb.  Hopefully he will get one within range today. His two assists so far this season are a just reward for his forward flair,but, it is his desire not to get beat that also inspires his team-mates. Newts looks beaten only to come back at his man and nick it at the expense of a throw, a corner, or even a canter down the flank to start a counter.

Newton epitomises the all-for-one and one-for-all spirit of  Team Lincoln with our flying fire-starter certainly stoking up the boiler as the Lincoln Loco toots its way into another station on the way to a play-off challenge.

Well played Sean I’d give you  9 out of 10 every game and you have certainly been close to adding to that Forest Green man-of-the-match award.

Farman Ready and Waiting

Paul Farman, normally the difference between a point or a hiding for the Imps, has almost been able to take his pipe and slippers onto the stage at the Theatre of the absurd.  But he and Preece have not been getting complacent putting the hours in on the training pitch to ensure the heroic keeper is not found wanting when the need arises.

Lincoln City F.C. badge.png

Paul is of course from Newcastle whilst Preece and Brown are from Sunderland, but the accent is close enough. The  North-East duo are probably the only two that can fully oondahstaaand Grant Brown, although an interpreter may soon be required given the abundance of Yorkshire accents at the training ground.  That said some of the ‘French’ is also beyond the vocabulary of Mo Fofana – a Frenchman by birth.

Farman has only had to make ten saves so far this season and four of those are crosses.  But when he has been called into action Farman has not let the side down as usual.  After being overlooked for England C inclusion you get the feeling his return to the limelight is not that far away.

The Case For The Defence

Lincoln’s back four, or should that be back 6, has only let in one goal so far this season,  but all of that could change with league leaders Cambridge and Wrexham posing double trouble this Bank holiday weekender.

Thank you for reading Neil Gentleman-Hobbs 

Lincoln City F.C. badge.png

Whenever STMI run a celebratory ‘case for the defence’ it always seems to backfire on the Imps, centre on the heroics of ‘safehands’ Farman. But fact is, even with Miller sidelined, Gray, Boyce, Brown and Neutron bomb Newton are stoking up the steam as the Lincoln Loco starts whistling at the station.  With Foster or Fofana partnering Nolan just in front the fears over the defence seem unfounded at the moment. The six man phalanx is even compensating for our lack of pace, with Miller and Jordan waiting in the wings and more than capable in a defensive midfield, centre-half or full- back role.

15 Gray 3 0 270 0 0 1 0 3 1 1 0

The next two games will test the Imps pretensions to a play-off place, but the faith is certainly growing in a team that defends from the front, with Tomlinson pitching in too.  The determination has seen plenty of cards (7) dished out by some very poor officials but only 3 of these have been awarded to the dedicated defensive 6 (Boyce, Gray & Foster). Tomlinson has 1, Power 1 and Rowe has 2 illustrating the contribution the whole side makes towards those clean sheets.

 

The chances of us keeping a clean sheet at Cambridge or at home to Wrexham are slim one feels, yet we thought that when faced with FGR’s tripod. In the end we were breached once through a fortuitous cross-cum-shot from Barry.  That has been the only goal conceded since Simmo’s six-foot Sincil soldiers set out their Skrill Premiership stall.  And even STMI’s oracle of Optimism did not expect that a fortnight ago.

 

So well played oh defenders of Impdom, there should be a fair few more bricks in your wall at Cambridge judging by the number of fans getting aboard the Lincoln Loco this weekend.

(STMI urge all IMPS to TOOT responsibly!)

Stockport County, Chester City, Barrow FC  and AFC Telford left-back Sean Newton will provide Lincoln with more assists than the basket carrier at the Tower of London, during the height of Henry VIII’s cunning Reformation fundraising ruse. This peaceable piece-rate loving fellow – who just about scrapes in to Simmo’s minimum defensive height criteria at 6′ 2″ – is as brilliant as he is ebullient with a left peg prized from the lap of the gods. Perhaps even poetry in motion?

Lincoln City F.C. badge.png

Newton is a fans favourite wherever he goes, our new Stuart Bimson, if you will. He can bring the foe to their knees and please the Sincil faithful, prising them off their pews, to ‘arghs and oohs’ as he ransacks the whites, the greens the reds, the Cods and the blues.  A veritable Newton’s cradle of energy, the busy bee gets up and down faster than a brides nightie. He is no slow-coach, dispensing justice to any encroacher who would have the audacity to  imitate a Lincolnshire poacher.

Welcome Sean Sincil salivates………………

In all seriousness and painkillers aside Sean at 24 is still coming into his peak, but what a talent going forward, the purists left back and no mistake. Now in the right side and with the right manager the shop window beckons for a player who will undoubtedly play higher in the football League.  His free-kicks will make us swoon, and he certainly gets some goals for a full-back , 6 last season as well as netting 12 in 109 outings for Telford, then under 21 and still waiting for his key to the door, he got an England C call, playing twice and scoring the once.  Stockport asked for a try before we buy loan, loved him and made him a permanent fixture last summer.

It was ambition that saw him come to us and not money. The Hatters were paying him more and wanted to keep him. Three League clubs had thrown him tentative offers of a pre-season trial but Simmo got their with first with a firm offer. The manager, the club and the potential just clicked making it impossible to turn us down.

An inspirational lad, on and off the pitch, Sean confortably qualifuies as a six-foot soldier given he is a full-back.  A look at the facts and stats below shows Sean scored 6 goals and laid on 6 official assists (he had a deal going where he was allegedly paid a bonus for 16 of them), firing off 49 shots from a left-foot long- nine cannon.  His tackling and shadowing are first rate, with just two yellow cards in his 44 appearances last term. The infectious lad will help to build TEAM LINCOLN morale no end.  He will give as good as he gets and prove to be one of the leaders we will need all over the park this season

Remember Tom Miller only failed to fulfil his promise at Rangers when a cruciate injury effectively negated his two-year contract, just a month in, after a switch from Norwich City. Then at Newport his face didn’t fit. So we know we have the quality to back up what our eyes have told us this last 18 months. But number two begs a question: Could a player who is better as a defensive midfielder be making way for another who is equally so? Namely Dan Gray, the expected Imps right-back, who has it all, bar perhaps, the Achilles of pace.

Lincoln City F.C. badge.png

Tom’s tenacity and none-shall pass mantra made him an instant hit at City, indeed his eight starring roles in 2011/12 played a massive part in keeping  us up. Fast forward 12 months and he had done it again, either at the heart of defence or at full-back when Diagne had succumbed to that awful gash. Tom inspires fans and team-mates alike, to have him in this season’s side of such promise, suggests sustenance to a successful Sincil Bank play-off bid. He is Lincoln personified, for this side has fight backed up by the class that, well, just might? Tom, has the boots finger and thumb to get stuck in, a stitch in time to save nine, to plug every proverbial dyke, as the fairy story would demand. Tom is certainly one who will move heaven and earth to make the dream a reality. The fairy tale ending  as team Lincoln attempt to sustain and achieve a Bank-bounce- back and a record seventh return to the Football League.

Few fans can say that there is a sense of expectation when the ball  falls to his feet, unless he is picking it up to send forth that javelin throw, of course. Like Farman, Boyce , Gray or Brown, he is seen as the reliable last line, who will throw body and soul onto the Sincil turf, to deny the foe. Indeed he is just as willing to take it to them as his away player of the year award confirms. Yet Tom is a utility player who can play anywhere along the back four or in a defensive midfield role. He has the engine to go box-to-box and those throws will be a vital piece of Simmo’s six-foot soldiers armoury again this term. Thankfully his reliability came good at another vital time, this time off the field of play, when it came to signing a new 2 year deal in the summer, suggesting he will provide substantial supporting evidence in the Lincoln City case for the defence for the foreseeable future.

A little history before the historic stats & bio………

Tom joined the Canaries at 14 and progressed through the ranks at the Colney Training centre to become Norwich City Academy player of the season, in 2008. But somehow it was not to be thanks to manager Glenn Roeder. who failed to give him a first year pro deal.

Jim Duffy, the then assistant manager, contacted Rangers when it was evident that Tom would not get what many felt should have been a deserved opportunity in the game.  He was flown up to Ibrox and had an outstanding trial game, making a telling contribution all over the pitch in a 5-1 win. Rangers gave him a two year contract to the delight of his proud father Ray, before the tragic injury struck.  Tom was then farmed out to the tough environment of the Irish League with Dundalk, before joining Newport.

Last season’s away player of the year has never hidden, home or away, whether he has been employed at full-back or centre-back, even though his best position is in a central or defensive midfield berth. In his season and a half at the Imps he has been inspirational, a true leader on the pitch when the going gets tough. A candidate for captain, he is a born winner and this two year deal suggest he shares the vision of manager Gary Simpson – that we will be there or thereabouts this season at the very least and push on in the second year.

Imps Hard-men Have Cards & Scars to prove it.

The Lincoln City card count for 2012/13 stood at 87 yellows and 6 reds.  The none shall pass attitude during a hard season came at a cost, but bravery and the desire to get stuck in is often misread by refs.

Simmos six foot soldiers took no prisoners that is for sure, but it was of no surprise to see Andrew Boyce live up to his nickname of Bank Beast Boyce, with Miller second.  Let us hope the budget and Simmo’s powers of persuasion can keep them, as well as Vadaine Oliver, Nat Brown, Dan Gray and Tony Diagne. Because in front of Farman they have proved they can take an awful lot of stick and give plenty back besides.  Tony Diagne’s wound was probably the worst – not for the squeamish –  but Dan Gray, Miller and Boyce all have some tasty scars. Brown played 3 games injured, as did Oliver, who only reacted once (a red) to some disgraceful treatment. Especially for any young pro just making his way in the trade. 

 

Well played lads, it is nice to see passion is still the fashion for those who don the stripes!

Miller & Boyce – The Banks Bravehearts

Ex- Doncaster Rovers and Gainsborough Trinity defender Andy Boyce and ex Norwich City and Rangers utility defender/midfielder Tom Miller, epitomise the none-shall-pass never say die attitude of Holdsworth’s Imps. Shot shy  and, lacking in creativity, we may be, but these two throw life and limb on the line for the whole 90 minutes, week in week out. Dan Gray deserves a mention, as does the injured John Nutter, but these guys are the brave-hearts, they are the Sincil Bank Dogs of War.

Thank you for Reading Neil Gentleman-Hobbs

Lincoln City F.C. badge.png

Both players are averaging just under the seven and a half out of ten.  Miller missed a few games through injury but since returning against Nuneaton he has been simply immense. Our central two are imperious in the air and on the ground and have edged, man for man, every strike force they have encountered as a partnership this season, to keep us in games. The odd slip will of course be magnified if you are not creating or taking chances at the other end.

Mansfield was not the first game this season we have managed to get just the one shot on target. Let us hop both players continue to stay with us for the rest of the season, although you have to feel that the club would accept any fee going, taking matters out of any managers hands. The following outstanding stats tell just half the tale and a full historical biopic can be obtained by clicking on either players name.

Take a bow oh favoured Sincil sons.
